I have had a pair of Oxtar (now TCX) Matrix GTX boots for about 10 years and have been very impressed with their performance and wear - indestructible over many thousands of miles. So, it was a no-brainer when it came time to replace my wife's non-motorcycle boots with the similar TCX Aura model. She wears a US size 7, but based on other reviewers recommendations for a half-size smaller, I ordered the EU 38 (US size 6.6) and they fit her perfectly. After many rides since receiving them, she is still VERY pleased with the fit and slimmer, more feminine shape. Overall, an excellent boot in every way!

Pit Bull Hybrid Dual Lift Stand The Pit Bull Hybrid Dual Lift Stand is based upon a modular design and can be easily converted to lift from the forks OR the lower triple tree by simply swapping out a few parts (included) in a matter of seconds. The Hybrid Dual Lift Front Stand features 7 indexable height adjustments, which is very desirable when removing the forks on your motorcycle or even when lifting a bike with uneven forks from underneath the forks. The upper portion of the Hybrid Dual Lift features a threaded 6mm hole which will allow you to install a simple 6mm bolt to serve as a caliper holder. Both removable handle and non-removable handle measures 12 inches. Extended handle measures 15 inches. Please use the Pit Bull Front Stand Pin Fitting Chart to select the correct size pin for your motorcycle.

Pit Bull's reputation is well-founded: this Hybrid Dual Lift front stand fits perfectly on my 1199, provides great stability, and is exceptionally well made. I doubt I will ever have to replace it.

Installed the GB Racing engine covers on my 1199 Panigale based on several great reviews. Unfortunately, I had to test them in a lowside at the track last weekend ... they passed! Instead of sacrificing a very expensive oem clutch cover, the GB cover did the job, remained intact, and prevented any damage to the engine. 'Nuff said - excellent product that works!

Added the Race Lite chest protector to the Pro L2K back protector I already had to complete the ensemble. Construction is similar to the back protector, flows air just as well, and, most important, molds to your chest shape - you don't notice it after a few minutes riding. Fortunately, both protectors fit perfectly under my race leathers without adding excess bulk. (I am a size 42 chest and purchased the Medium protector.) Very pleased with the quality and fit & finish of Forcefield products - highly recommended.

I purchased this BackPad Insert Pro (medium) for a Dainese Zen-Evo size 52/42 jacket and it was too small in both length and width - it slid around inside the pocket. However, it fit perfectly in an older Dainese Trax size 52/42 jacket. Recommend measuring your jacket insert pocket and then ordering the appropriately sized protector and not necessarily the one labeled "for Dainese." Otherwise, this is an excellent product and, like other Forcefield protectors, is not really noticeable while riding and doesn't add appreciably to the weight of a leather jacket.

Have been very satisfied with two pairs of Held Steve touring gloves over the last 8 years, so I ordered these Akira-Evo gloves for track use with confidence. Kangaroo palms provide great feel on the grips, construction and finish is the high quality expected from Held, and the fit (size 8.5) is excellent - no break-in required. Armor is rugged, well-placed, and will (hopefully) save my hands if called upon. Excellent product and well worth the price.

 Forcefield Back Protector Pro Kevlar L2
Forcefield Back Protector Pro Kevlar L2
Forcefield Back Protector Pro Kevlar L2K The award winning and best-selling Forcefield Back Protector Pro L2 has evolved into the all new Pro L2K (Kevlar) and is now constructed using Kevlar thread for increased strength and durability. Kevlar has 5 times the tensile strength of steel along with high cut and abrasion resistance and ensures the strongest back protector available just got stronger! Combined with NitrexEvo a unique high-tech triangular shock absorbing material the Forcefield Pro L2K (Kevlar) back protector is designed to be soft, flexible and comfortable whilst still providing maximum impact protection and conforms to, and exceeds the CE test EN1621-22003 Level 2 the highest possible level. NitrexEvo provides Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) to ensure that even after multiple impacts there is no loss of protective performance and 3D moulds to closely fit the contours of the riders back creating the ultimate in all day comfort. The Pro L2K is constructed in multiple layers that are stitched and perforated in such a way as to allow partial movement of the inner layers. This movement has a dual purpose, to make the protector more comfortable by allowing it to mould to the body shape and to pump air through the multiple perforations to build up and ventilate between the back when in use. Fully adjustable shoulder straps and double waist adjustment ensure a correct fit for different body shapes and sizes. The ultimate all use motorcycle back protector from Forcefield Body Armour. Features CE Level 2 protection Cambridge Certified Repeat performance technology Comfortable and nonrestrictive Reassuringly solid yet slim-line fitting Multi-impact (will not lose its strength halfway through a crash) Breathable Lightweight Flexible Molds to your body shape Can be worn under outer clothing with ease Multi-sport back protector Fully adjustable for that perfect fit

First time purchasing a back protector and picked up this Forcefield Pro L2K based on a recommendation from a friend who uses one and is an experienced rider. I'm 5'10" and 185 lbs, so I ordered the Medium. While a little pricier than most, you get what you pay for - couldn't be happier with the quality, fit and finish. Fits perfectly under my Dainese Zen Evo size 52/42 jacket. It's light weight, form fitting, and frankly it 'disappears' when riding on the track - I don't even notice it. Hope I never have to test its CE Level 2 protection, but I have faith it will do the job. Excellent product.
